"Olivia is an outstanding young woman of sterling character," MHS athletic director Mark Tarmey said.
ZACH ZANIEWSKI, MASCONOMET
Rowing may be the ultimate team sport, with each rower in a boat working in sync towards a common goal. Masconomet senior Zach Zaniewski exemplifies that kind of teamwork in everything he does.
A member of the Essex Rowing Club (as Masconomet does not have a varsity rowing team), Zaniewski has been an asset and a leader in the water and is also a three-year varsity basketball standout for the Chieftains, captaining the hoops team his senior year. The rugged rebounder helped his team qualify for the state tournament this past winter.
Zaniewski's interests are as diverse as the number of fish in the rivers he rows through. As a singer, he is a member of Masconomet's elite chorale which performed at venues across Northern Italy last spring. He is also a member of the student emergency response team and is taking EMT training this year.
An Eagle Scout, Zaniewski earned that prestigious distinction through a 154-hour community service project. In the classroom, Zaniewski is a National Honor Society member that ranks No. 55 in his senior class. He earned the Al Brown Award for Outstanding Achievement in World History and also twice placed in Masconomet's science fair.
"Zack is truly an outstanding student and individual. He exemplifies the meaning of the world role modal," Masconomet guidance counselor Irene Duros said.
An honor roll student, Zaniewski will bring his considerably diverse interests to the College of the Holy Cross next year.
ANGELA ELLISON, PEABODY
Both on the soccer field and in the classroom, Angela Ellison exudes poise and grace. The Peabody High senior is rare athlete whose focus on the most minute of details helps her teammates succeed, and that attention and dedication has helped her attain the No. 2 ranking in Peabody's class of 430 seniors.
